In training for the event, Moses strutted his trick shot abilities he learned on the gridiron. During the week, they met at Evolution Basketball’s training facility in Ashburn where Moses knocked in a nothing but net 'long snap' from what appears to be half-court.
Watch out Nick Sundberg, someone might be coming for your job.

Redskins locks and bubble players
Yesterday I looked at players who will not be returning to the Redskins in 2016. Today the focus shifts to the players who are on the roster and separating them into who is certain to be on the Week 1 roster and who is on the bubble.
That totals 33 locks. These are players who are on the bubble; only players who were on the team last year or were notable signings are included here. The other street free agents signed are long shots.
G Arie Kouandjio
OL Vinston Painter
QB Nate Sudfeld
RB Mack Brown
RB Matt Jones
TE Derek Carrier
TE Niles Paul
WR Maurice Harris
WR Ryan Grant
Most of these bubble players will be watching the draft closely. A quarterback drafted early would be bad news for Sudfeld. A third-round guard could be an ominous sign for Kouandjio. The three I most strongly considered putting the lock list were Jones, Paul, and Harris but too much can happen to call them sure things.
DE Ziggy Hood
DE Matt Ioannidis
DE A.J. Francis
NT Phil Taylor
OLB Houston Bates
LB Chris Carter
LB Steven Daniels
LB Martrell Spaight
OLB Lynden Trail
LB Zach Vigil
CB Tharold Simon
S Josh Evans
S Deshazor Everett
S DeAngelo Hall
S Earl Wolff
The three closest to being locks here are Hall, Hood, and Spaight. Hall has to show that he can come back from his ACL, Hood could get bumped out by promising draft picks, and Spaight needs to fend off potential draft picks and possibly Daniels and Vigil.
I’ll take another look at this after the draft to see how things shift.
The 30-year-old lineman visited with the Bears and Seahawks before choosing to sign with Green Bay. Former Redskin Chris Baker, now in Tampa Bay, had also attempted to recruit Jean-Francois on Twitter to join him with the Bucs.
By cutting Jean-Francois last week, Washington will save $3 million toward their 2017 salary cap. Some have also speculated whether his criticism of the franchise was a factor in the transaction.
